The Mary Mac Show | How to Help a Grieving Friend or Relative | Practical Support

The Mary Mac Show Podcast

Previously, in episodes 14 and 15, we learned what to SAY and NOT SAY to a grieving friend or relative.

In Episode 27, we discussed what to DO to lend support, emotional support, to those we love who are grieving the death of a loved one.

This week in Episode 28, we discuss that to DO to lend practical support, everything from being present when the person first dies, helping with funeral arrangements, writing obituaries, eulogies, making sure everyone is fed, running errands, ironing clothing for the wake and funeral and so much more.

When a loved one dies, we become overwhelmed with all the tasks that need attending to and there is nothing more comforting to know good friends are near and waiting for the bereaved’s gentle commands.

There is nothing more wonderful to know that your friend is not in this alone and you are there right by their side.

Things that will help:
